I'm sorry to dig up an ancient thread. May somebody deliver a fresh opinion on this
subject, considering that the CAcert Official Document (or "COD") 14, known as
the 'CACert Root Distribution License' (or "RDL"), and referenced on the
Fedora Licensing page , and in more details on , went from 10-Jul-2010 DRAFT  to
31-Jul-2014 POLICY , as well as also replaced by itself the now obsolete 'CAcert
Non-Related Persons Disclaimer and License', see it mentioned on , again. It
renders  and  slightly outdated.
Moreover, on 30-Oct-2011 to the Talk: page referenced thereof, was added a detailed
explanation of how CAcert works and how the CA business works; [and that the] conclusions
[were] based on false assumption that the Root is Software.
Disclosure: I am a CAcert Certified Assurer. CAcert Inc now licenses its documents back
again under open CC-by-sa+DRP license [*].
